If you like to build a taco or burrito just the way you like it, this is the place for you. You order from a menu (list of ingredients) and styles (Burrito, Taco, Quesadia, etc.) and there is plenty of outdoor seating (a smaller indoor seating space). A great lunch or take out place.

Was disappointed - fairly pricey for a little bit of food. The tortilla was dry and broke apart. Salsa was good, though. Not much to say...think I'll stick to the traditional Mexican restaurants. There is a good one just across the street!

It's sad. My love affair with the Taco Bus is officially over. I was a huge from the beginning. But the last few times I went there I liked it less and less. The tacos have less and less content on them. The tortillas fall apart as thin sheets of paper. The freshness of the food is gone. Word. Get... More

Taco Bus is a favorite of my friends who live in St. Petersburg, so we had to go during my visit. I ordered the torta and was in flavor heaven! Was fun to be able to stand outside and drink a cold beer while we waited for our food.

We chose this place for lunch due to the many gluten free options. The platos plate of nachos was pretty good, and my partner enjoyed her two tacos. Prices were reasonable, the meal for two was under $20. The Saturday Special is two tacos, chips with salsa, and a drink for $8.

Got el Plato with steak. Food came out cold and gross looking. This place use to be great. I have not been in a while and I won't be coming back. Taco Son is now and has been for a while the best place for authentic Mexican. The menu at Taco Bus is a shell of what it used to... More

This place was a terrible experience. The employees were unfriendly and rude. Cook was using profanity. Stale taco. Cold beans. Hard rice. Asked to speak to someone about it and no one came to address the issue so I left. Over priced! This is a terrible place and I advice you to go anywhere else but here.

First time here for lunch. It was terrible. Bad atmosphere, cold refried beans, stale taco, hard rice. Unhappy and disrespectful employees. I can't believe they have a good rating. Maybe they were better before but it's terrible now. There are plenty of good Mexican restaurants in St Petersburg so go to one of them!

First for the positives: the venue was clean and the service was polite. However, the clean venue and polite service simply could not overcome the culinary deficiencies displayed at this establishment. Negatives: The dishes tried include a children's quesadilla, children's tacos, burrito (carne asada style), and tacos (carne asada style). In short, each of the dishes (aside from the children's...
